Statement on the Scope and Standards of Oncology Nursing Practice: Generalist and Advanced Practice addresses standards for both oncology registered nurses and oncology advanced practice nurses. Reflecting how practitioners at all levels of nursing practice are working together to transform healthcare, your new standards combines and updates Statement on the Scope and Standards of Advanced Practice Nursing in Oncology (Jacobs, 2003) and Statement on the Scope and Standards of Oncology Nursing Practice (Brant & Wickham, 2004).
As in the previous editions, the publication describes the role of the oncology nurse and gives you a comprehensive look at your chosen profession. You'll find guidelines on the scope of oncology nursing practice, standards of care for the RN and advanced practice RN, and professional performance standards.
In addition, you'll learn the importance of gaining autonomy in practice, as well as strategies for building relationships with other members of your healthcare team.
